The 90th Academy Awards rewarded a surreal love story, a Chilean drama, the portrayal of a violent cop and more. After a year in Hollywood marked by the #MeToo movement and Time’s Up, this year’s Academy Awards were dominated by calls for more diversity and inclusivity for women, people of color, immigrants and minorities….The Oscars 2018, Ladies and Gentlemen!
Heading into the night hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, Guillermo del Toro’s The Shape of Water led the field with 13 nominations, and it ended up winning four Oscars, including major categories Best Picture and Directing, as well as Production Design and Original Score.
The other big winners of the night were Jordan Peele, who won Best Original Screenplay for Get Out; Frances McDormand and Sam Rockwell, Best Actress and Supporting Actor (respectively) for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri; James Ivory, who won Best Adapted Screenplay for Call Me by Your Name; Gary Oldman, who won Best Actor for The Darkest Hour; and Allison Janney, for Best Supporting Actress for I,Tonya.
This year’s Oscar race was marked by a wide-open Best Picture race. And as evidenced by the variety in winners in those major awards, there was no sweep. Del Toro’s The Shape of Water won Best Picture but didn’t win in any of the acting categories, nor did it win Original Screenplay.
